More About the San Marino Old Mill
The Old Mill, El Molino Viejo, was completed about 1816 as a gristmill for Mission San Gabriel. Today, the historic adobe building stands as a testament to the legacy of the California missions and the Spanish presence in early California. The original adobe building sits amongst almost two acres of gardens, lovingly tended by the Diggers Garden Club.
The Old Mill Foundation’s overarching purpose is to maintain, preserve, and operate The Old Mill. As a part of that mission, the OMF develops and creates many artistic, educational, and community programs at The Old Mill.
El Molino Viejo is an architectural landmark, a monument that celebrates the history of California. Situated on a hillside about two miles northwest of Mission San Gabriel, El Molino Viejo belongs to the City of San Marino and is operated by The Old Mill Foundation. The Old Mill has officially marked a state of California Historical Landmark.
